YouTube star-turned-beauty guru Shane Dawson has released extensive footage from an attempted robbery that took place in October, which was teased in an episode of his 2019 series with Jeffree Star.

In the first episode of his documentary series “The Beautiful World of Jeffree Star,” Dawson and fiance Ryland Adams revealed they’d had to call law enforcement to their home due to the presence of unwanted intruders.

A short, dramatic clip of the break-in featured footage of Ryland holding a baseball bat, with Dawson showing a phone call to 911 — a disturbing incident that was expounded upon in his latest video uploaded to his new channel, “Shane Glossin.”

Under this new moniker, Dawson revealed the ordeal in its entirety, showcasing security camera footage that revealed the presence of a hooded stranger walking outside the house as Ryland spoke to police on the phone.

The camera then went dark, with sounds of persistent knocking sending Dawson into a panic as he whispered, “Oh my god,” in fear.

The spine-chilling moment was preceded by a voicemail from Jeffree Star, who expressed relief that Shane had recorded the incident on film as further proof of the invasion and advised him to amp up security on the property.

Dawson later explained the invaders’ motivation, claiming that they’d been trying to steal his “Conspiracy” makeup palette ahead of launch.

Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star released their highly successful “Conspiracy” makeup collaboration in late 2019.

“Jeffree said, ‘Listen, once we start doing this palette, people are gonna start coming for you,’” the YouTuber recalled. “I thought he meant like on Twitter, haters or something. He meant in real life, and they would try to come to my house and rob me, and find our makeup palette and steal it and f**king counterfeit it.”

The YouTuber later claimed that the would-be robber climbed over his fence and made their way into his home via the garage, prompting him to try and lock the door at the exact moment they tried to open it.

The break-in followed the notable robbery of Star’s warehouse in April, which resulted in the black market sale of his concealer line before it had been released to the public.

Thankfully, both Dawson and Ryland emerged from the terrifying ordeal unscathed — but the blood curdling footage acts as a chilling reminder of the consequences that internet stardom can bring.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
